Since the end of World War II the United States has experienced tremendous technological and scientific progress while simultaneously experiencing increasing economic inequality. Major social and economic changes, shifting political alliances, weak political leadership, compromised and biased public discourse combine to create a fertile ground ready for fresh ideas and ways of thinking.

There can be shared prosperity. Today Yannis Tziligakis and Marty Rowland map out the political discourse that must begin if we all are to enjoy a future filled with progress and prosperity. Marty Rowland studied economics under Daniel W. Bromley, emeritus professor of applied economics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and used the theories of Elinor Ostrom (2010 Nobel Prize Economist) on common pool resource management systems. Yannis Tziligakis is an independent researcher and educator, and a long-time advocate for the philosophy of Henry George.
